José Parlá

11 José Parlá - Surface and Surface

Calligraphic paintings and concrete sculptures from Cuban raised, Miami born, New York based Artist / historical transcriber / visual raconteur José Parlá.

“Parlá concentrates on the problems inherent in the change of context from the street to the galleries that few of the old school writers had successfully negotiated. A notable exception is, of course, SAMO, who later painted under his given name, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Parlá’s work takes off from and expands on these roots.”  Joan Waltemath, Brooklyn Rail

An interview with José Parlá and Ann Binlot from The New York Times is available here and another from The Block Magazine here.

“I’m interested in bringing the energy of the city inside the gallery,”  José Parlá
